pure jealousy...from my experience is all i can say. sometimes you have to be able to shift on the fly,and take any opportunity that presents itself..legal of course.

I am bothered by this attitude as well. In my opinion, the two most challenging turkeys I have every killed were birds I saw from a distance and was able to stalk up to and kill them.

A lot of folks don't consider that real turkey hunting.

I have killed birds about every way you can, traditional locate/set up/call in, from a ground blind mid day just sitting and waiting, in the fall with a bow from my deer stand, and spot/stalk/belly crawl style.

The two that I stalked were definetly the most challenging. So I don't get the elitist attitude either. Some people just think their way to do things is pure and they are closed minded to all other tactics, but the way I see it, any legal way to harvest your game is a good way.

I agree with you. People who want to hunt certain ways only is great but just because somebody else doesn't want to do it your way gives you NO right to bash them. Those people are generally miserable people anyway. I mean do they only shoot deer if they call them in on a string? I doubt it or they don't kill much that's for sure. as long as your legal keep on hunting!

I'll bite. Its because we all have a passion for what we do. Sometimes people get carried away and believe everyone should have the same type of passion as them. I think you will find out that you will get caught up in it to. do you beleive because you are hunting on public land that somehow its harder than private land? Its just different. Yes maybe more pressure or maybe not. I thought it was a great hunt and happy for you. Most are just giving an opinion so don't get to caught up on the idiots

In answer to your original question catman, it all goes back to history and tradition.

The history is that the comeback from near extinction level of the wild turkey to huntable populations to the near nuisance level they can be today is lost on many (and I mean those that have recently taken up the sport in the last 20 years or so). I can still remember the days where there were no birds and very few deer in Maury County. I can still remeber when just hearing a bird gobble made your entire season worhtwhile in West TN.

For those that have historically had populations of birds in areas that legal hunting was possible, very few turkey hunters were successful in killing birds...and those who did consistently kill birds did so with remarkably similiar tactics...therefore the traditional tactics were born in order to breed success amongst less successful turkey hunters. As populations grew, more successful tactics were developed which flew in the face traditionalists causing an elitism among certain factions. Basically those who were taught by traditionalist seem elitist...those who have recently learned on their own are much more open minded.

As for fall turkey hunting, Archibal Rutledge said it best when he claimed the toughest trophy in North America is calling a mature tom to the gun in the fall. Anybody can do it in the spring.

I haven't seen it on the list in the book? Maybe I overlooked it.
